Gluten Free Pancake Recipe

3.2 based on 5 ratings

What You Need:

  • 1 small or medium banana
  • 1 large egg
  • Olive oil or coconut oil

What You Do:

  1. Have your child smash the banana with a fork.
  2. Blend the egg in with the banana. Tip: Pasteurized eggs have two to four times more Vitamin A and D than unpasteurized eggs.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan.
  4. Ask your child to spoon a small amount of the mixture to the pan. Dollar-sized pancakes are perfect for younger kids and easier to flip. 
  5. Cook on medium heat for a couple of minutes, until the bottom is golden brown and starts to sizzle.
  6. Have your child flip it over carefully with a spatula and cook the batter through.
  7. Set it aside on a plate and cook the rest of the batter.
  8. Enjoy your pancakes alone or with a little syrup and a side of sausage! Yum!

Grain add-in option: An equally delicious twist to this recipe is to mix in half a cup of cooked wild rice, ½ teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of salt. Cook as directed as above. The addition of wild rice makes for a slightly heartier dish with great texture.

Fun fact: The banana tree isn’t really a tree; it is the world’s largest herb!
